Following his title-winning victory over Bermane Stiverne on Saturday night, newly-crowned WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder spoke with pure joy about the fight itself and what his future holds.

Wilder (33-0, 32 KO’s) was too strong, smart, and powerful for Stiverne, who drops to 24-2-1 with 21 knockouts.

In the wake of his victory, Wilder is motioning for the best available opponents and seems keen on meeting up with WBA/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko sooner rather than later.
